Osprey in Bradford?
My family and I were driving home through Bradford when I spotted a very large bird on the top of a telephone pole.
It looked black and white in colour. We turned around to go back and take a picture, but as we went back by it some smaller birds were chasing it away.
Unfortunately I didn't get a good shot. It had an incredible wing span. We did get a good look at it really resembles the Osprey in the video on this site.Thanks for the report of your sighting, if you have other pictures, Val, just submit them to me using the same form, and I will add them at the bottom of this page. You can send as many pictures as you like (one at a time) and I can add the good ones here.
The Osprey has black and white markings on the face, but the Turkey Vulture has black and white markings on the under-side of the wings.
There is something "Turkey Vulture-ish" about the wing tips on the picture above, do any of our readers know, or can they tell the species from this picture?
We'd love to know.
